Presenting, the Alter Ego detector by Liam W!

This AE detector uses a cookie to detect multiple accounts. The cookie lasts for either an admin configurable time (default 12 months), or until the user clears their cookies.

You can have a AE detection notify your staff by any combination of the following:
  • a PC
  • a new thread
  • A report

The check is performed during the login process, and the user won't even notice anything is different if they're using an AE.

New Permissions:
  • Byspass Alert Ego Checking
  • View Alert Ego Report
Please ensure you assign the "View Alert Ego Report" to your moderator/administrator groups so they can see the Alter Ego Reports.
